Supernatural detective Jack Nightingale faces a demonic killer when he investigates a series of gory deaths in a Brighton hotel. Along with his sidekick Jenny, Nightingale must find a way to tempt the monster into a trap, but what will the shrewd sleuth use for bait?
Stephen Leather is a bestselling thriller writer with an impressive track record. This story, however, is my first foray into the world of his paranormal detective, Jack Nightingale. Superbly narrated by actor Paul Thornley, ‘Blood Bath’ has a running time of about an hour and a half. It’s a well-written and clever tale that held my interest and left me wanting more. It’s also worth pointing out that the Kindle edition is accompanied by six additional stories penned by fans of the author, whereas the Audible version (which I bought), includes only the title story.
